• Elizabeth McKay AW13


    Street style has been all the rage for the past four years as an increasing number of designers mine their inspiration directly from it. For this fall season’s Elizabeth McKay collection, McKay looked to the actual streets of Zurich, London, and Paris as muses. Since we couldn’t exactly shoot on location (thanks economy), I cheekily shot Veronika in front of backdrops one might expect to see on a street style blog. The light set-ups and gear are all kind of part of it. I am partially fond of the little black dress inspired by the streets of Paris. Very Audrey. And Paris is always a good idea...even when it’s just a 4’ x 8’ postcard.

    Where can you purchase the navy top and red and navy pants that the model is wearing in front of the table and chairs? I could not find them on the website.i love the top. Does it come in other colors?

    I’m going to say this: I think the backdrop idea is great! Especially revealed as done here. IMO, it serves to add a contextual element, but forces the attention back onto the subject. Quite effective, and for showcasing models and garments, I prefer this to location shooting. Of course, you can still travel the world to take photos to turn into backdrops, but without all the cast, crew and equipment to weigh you down (or rat you out if a wild hair pokes up somewhere far away). Nice.

    @Leith—The shorter hem lines are a design detail characteristic of the holiday collection, which boasts party dresses where showing a little more leg more appropriate and youthful.

    These outfits are great, but why do some of the hem lines stop at mid thigh?
